Following an accidental leak, Sega has now officially announced that Sega Mega Drive Classics is on the way for PS4 and Xbox One (or Sega Genesis Classics if you’re in the US).

The collection has over 50 games that were released on Sega’s 16-bit console (even the rather rare Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole). The Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection was released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2009. So what does this new Classics collection have that the previous one didn’t? Well, the titles below with an asterisk are games that were not available on the previous release. Strangely there is no Ecco the Dolphin, which was a part of the Ultimate Collection and also available on Steam’s release.

The complete list of games was revealed on PlayStation.Blog and include:

  • Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
  • Alien Soldier*
  • Alien Storm
  • Altered Beast
  • Beyond Oasis
  • Bio-Hazard Battle*
  • Bonanza Bros.
  • Columns
  • Columns III: Revenge of Columns*
  • Comix Zone
  • Crack Down*
  • Decap Attack
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Dynamite Headdy
  • ESWAT: City Under Siege
  • Fatal Labyrinth
  • Flicky
  • Gain Ground
  • Galaxy Force II*
  • Golden Axe
  • Golden Axe II
  • Golden Axe III
  • Gunstar Heroes*
  • Kid Chameleon
  • Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole*
  • Light Crusader*
  • Phantasy Star II
  • Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom
  • Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millenium
  • Ristar
  • Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi*
  • Shining Force
  • Shining Force II
  • Shining in the Darkness
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Sonic 3D Blast
  • Sonic Spinball
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Space Harrier II*
  • Streets of Rage
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Streets of Rage 3
  • Super Thunder Blade
  • Sword of Vermilion*
  • The Revenge of Shinobi*
  • ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron*
  • ToeJam & Earl*
  • Vectorman
  • VectorMan 2
  • Virtua Fighter 2*
  • Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair*
  • Wonder Boy in Monster World*

Other additions include graphic enhancement filters and a Horizontal Flip Mode, which flips the screen, making for an additional challenge for those of you that wish to see Sonic run left instead of right. The most interesting addition is the ability to play multiplayer games online. So you can now play the likes of Golden Axe or Columns with someone on the other side the world.

The trailer is a brilliantly cut nostalgia trip, with an opening shot in a bedroom, complete with CRT TV, VHS tapes and posters of Golden Axe and Streets of Rage (these posters will come packaged with the game). There’s also a shot of Sonic the Hedgehog, the Warrior from Altered Beast and Red from Gunstar Heroes running alongside each other.

Hopefully a Sega Saturn or Sega Dreamcast collection is in the works for the future.

Sega Mega Drive Classics is released on 29 May 2018.
